NEW YORK, Sept. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Goldcorp Inc. ("Goldcorp" or the "Company") (NYSE:GG) of the October 24, 2016 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.
The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all those who purchased Goldcorp stock or options between March 31, 2014 and August 24, 2016 (the "Class Period"). The case, Robert Cowan v. Goldcorp, Inc. et al, No. 2:16-cv-06391 was filed on August 25, 2016, and has been assigned to Judge Fernando M. Olguin.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose the severity of selenium levels in groundwater around its Peñasquito Mine in Mexico.
Specifically, on August 24, 2016, Reuters reported that Mexican regulators were examining whether Goldcorp broke reporting or disclosure regulations in its handling of a long-running leak of contaminated water at the Peñasquito Mine that had been occurring as early as October 2013.
After the announcement, Goldcorp's share price fell from $17.69 per share on August 23, 2016 to a closing price of $16.05 on August 24, 2016 —a $1.64 or a 9.27% drop.
